Reduction In “Carbon Emissions” During Lockdown Had Little Effect, Part 947

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Remember how they said we had to all reduce our carbon footprint (meaning you, not the people saying it), and that government should basically force people to do so. Well, that pretty much happened. Yet, atmospheric CO2 continued to rise, so, we’re still in the Making Excuses phase

Climate change: Covid pandemic has little impact on rise in CO2

The global response to the Covid-19 crisis has had little impact on the continued rise in atmospheric concentrations of CO2, says the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

Carbon emissions fell dramatically in 2020 due to lockdowns that saw transport and industry grind to a halt.

But this has only marginally slowed down the overall rise in concentrations, the scientists say.

The details are published in the WMO’s annual greenhouse gas bulletin. (snip)

Thanks to lockdowns in early 2020, carbon emissions fell by 17% at their peak, but the overall effect on concentrations has been very small.

Preliminary estimates suggest that CO2 will continue to increase this year but that rise will be reduced by 0.08 to 0.23ppm.

So, if seeing a bigger reduction than Warmists were calling for (roughly 7-10% reduction) doesn’t actually change anything, might there be other forces at play? Like, oh, nature, and being in a typical Holocene Warm period caused mostly by nature?

This falls within the 1ppm natural variability that occurs from year to year.

“We breached the global threshold of 400 parts per million in 2015, and just four years later, we crossed 410 ppm, such a rate of increase has never been seen in the history of our records,” said WMO secretary general, Prof Petteri Taalas.

“The lockdown-related fall in emissions is just a tiny blip on the long-term graph. We need a sustained flattening of the curve,” he said.

And that’s the point, to lock everything down (for Other People) for years, if not decades. You’re OK with that, right?
